Split into beasts of all kinds and forced to shift into humans, Khimairans were graced with humanity by the gods, and Dante's humanity was fleeting.
Dante Coburn is running out of time.
He's the leader of the Khimairan shifters and that won't save him from turning primal. Once his beast takes over…there's no coming back. Unless he can find his mate before he turns and kills everyone he holds dear. When Bailey walks into his life, he thinks he's found everything he needs as his Leo zodiac mark is invoked. However, she wants nothing to do with Khimairan shifters and knows nothing of her real heritage.
Bailey can’t imagine living in a city where Khimairans dominate. The dirty shifters can piss off... The lot of them. They killed her mother and her aunt, and she'll be damned if she has to live near them. When Bailey inherits more than a store from her aunt, which includes the intensely seductive Dante Coburn, Bailey has to face her desires to stay sane.
After a group of fanatics show up, Dante risks his immortal life to keep her safe, even if she'll never have him.

This book will quickly grab your attention and keep you in the story! I love the background on the shifters origin. Bailey is the heir to a shop in Currance Colorado. The shop is called The Talisman and she;s inherited from her Aunt Nady. She;s there to do one thing--take stock of the place, sell it and get the heck out of there. She hates the Khimairans, or shifters because according to her father they were the cause of her mother;s death and eventually her fathers. Dante is a lion shifter, or the form he likes to take. He has been going to the shop to see if Nady;s niece has arrived. On this night when he shows up, he finds her on the floor almost passed out. When he introduces himself as Dante, forget telling her about his alter ego, she lets him know she;s selling and leaving as fast as she can. Dante is not only shocked by her news, but also shocked by the fact she is his mate! She;s invoked his leo symbol. Now what;s a lion to do to win over his mate, make her understand that her perceptions of the Khimairans are false. That is a tale worth reading just buckle up and sit back for the read of your life! Fantastic story and read!! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
A great book in a great series. Two people torn by their beliefs only to be fated to be mates. Dante feels guilty not protecting Bailey's family from being killed, and Bailey was raised by her father that Khimairan were evil and killed her family. Dante being a Khimairan has to show Bailey that Khimairan's aren't all evil and what her mom and aunt truly were. I love Decadent Kane books and I burned the midnight oil reading this. It's a enchanting story in the Zodiac series. I volunteer to read and review this ARC.
Emotionally thrilling, action packed and highly entertaining romantic adventure filled with danger, secrets and searing hot passion that will not be denied. Dante Coburn the current Alpha of the Khimairans is in a desperate situation ... he needs his mate to save his humanity. Bailey is a sexy, sassy and strong independent female that is totally in the dark about her past and who she really is. When she takes over her aunts shop in the Khimairans shifter territory she gets so much more than a shop. Wanting to make a quick exit she is looking to sell and fast but is blindsided by the past and the true events of long ago.... Loved every heart pounding twist.
